Well, this interesting. Given the number of Android devices running custom UI from manufacturers, more than often times this means an OEM has replaced a few stock Google apps with Google Calendar being one of the major ones finding itself kicked to the curb. Now, it appears Google may be combating this by introducing their stock Android 4.0.3 Calendar application into the Play Store for everyone to download enjoy, regardless of the make of their Android device.
While this wont be anything new for those with Nexus devices, this is a welcomed change for those running TouchWiz, Sense, or Motoblur for the past few years. The Calendar app doesn’t come without its problems however, although most of the bugs are associated with HTC devices. Hit the link below for the download. Now, if Google can only release a stock Messaging, Camera, and Contacts app, I’ll be a happy camper.
